The story of the great novelist told by his daughter. “She gives a familiar and intimate account of his daily life, character, and habits. She is naturally her father’s partisan in all quarrels that he had. But there are facts and points of view in this book that can be found in no other work. To those who have read Dostoevsky’s novels these new and intimate revelations will be of keen interest, but even if one has never read any of the novels, this biography is written in such a manner as to hold the attention of the reader from beginning to end.” — William Lyon Phelps
